MY BELIEFS

  1. I believe the Bible, consisting of 66 books, is the Word of God; that both the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God, inerrant and infallible. I believe that this divine inspiration extends equally and fully to all parts of the writings as they appeared in the original manuscripts. I believe that the Bible is our supreme and final authority for what we are to believe and for the way we are to live.
    Psalm 1191 Thessalonians 2:132 Timothy 3:16-172 Peter 1:20-21

  2. I believe there is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
    Genesis 1:1Deuteronomy 6:4John 1:1-32 Samuel 22:31Matthew 5:48Psalm 90:2Revelation 1:8Matthew 28:19John 14:26Ephesians 4:4-6

  3. I believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth; in His substitutionary atonement; in His physical resurrection; in His bodily ascension into Heaven; in His presence now at the right hand of God as our mediator, high priest, and advocate.
    John 1:1-5John 14John 10:30-33Matthew 1:23Luke 1:27Romans 5:82 Corinthians 5:211 John 2:1-2Mark 8:31Mark 9:31 Mark 10:341 Corinthians 15:20-22Luke 24:50-51Hebrews 4:14-16Hebrews 7:26-27Hebrews 8:1Hebrews 9:151 Timothy 2:5Ephesians 1:20

  4. I believe that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, convicts men of their need of Christ before they can be saved, and that He regenerates them, giving them eternal life. I believe that He permanently indwells every believer the moment he is saved sealing them unto the day of redemption; that He baptizes into the Body of Christ all who are saved; and that He fills believers who are yielded to Him. I believe that speaking in tongues was never the common nor necessary sign of the baptism or the filling of the Spirit.
    John 3:5John14:34-35John 16:7-8Acts 2:4-111 Corinthians 2:10-141 Corinthians 6:19-201 Corinthians 12:131 Corinthians 12:29-301 Corinthians 14:26-28Galatians 5:22Ephesians 1:13-14Ephesians 2:1-5Ephesians 4:30Ephesians 5:15-211 Thessalonians 5:19

  5. I believe man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost and totally depraved; only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
    Genesis 1:26-27Genesis 9:62 Chronicles 6:36Luke 19:10John 3:3-8Romans 1:22-25Romans 3:23Ephesians 2:1-5Colossians 2:131 Peter 1:3

  6. I believe that salvation is by grace, through faith alone, utterly apart from any human merit or work. I believe that our salvation has been completely accomplished through Christ, who died in our place. I believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and thus are secure in Christ forever.
    Romans 3:23-24Ephesians 1:13-14Ephesians 2:8-9Titus 2:11-142 Corinthians 1:21-221 Peter 1:3 -5John 6:37

  7. I believe all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ should live for the glory of God, and should be obedient to His Word.
    Deuteronomy 13:4Jeremiah 13:15-16Acts 5:27-291 Corinthians 10:31Colossians 3:23-241 Peter 4:7-111 John 5:2

  8. I believe in the personality and reality of Satan.
    Matthew 4:1-112 Corinthians 4:1-4Ephesians 2:1-41 Peter 5:8-9Revelation 12:9Revelation 20:1-3Revelation 20:7-10

  9. I believe in the bodily resurrection of all men: the saved to eternal life, and the unsaved to judgment and everlasting punishment. I believe in the reality of Heaven and Hell.
